ORLANDO, Fla. – Entering the day on a four-match winning streak, the Denison men's tennis team pushed that streak to five on Thursday afternoon, rounding out their time at the USTA National Campus with an 8-1 victory over Hope College.

In double play, DU's No. 1 duo of Kevin Brown and Jamie McDonald improved to 4-2 on the dual season, edging Hope's Michael Kiley and Timothy Roe, 9-7.

The Flying Dutch got the best of the Big Red in No. 2 doubles when Mark VanderStoep and Danny Kroeze defeated Mitchell Thai and Blake Burstein, 8-3, but Denison rebounded on the No. 3 court as John Purnode and Ryan Issa bested the pair of Carter Smiley and Justin Folkert, 8-4.

For the second day in a row, the Big Red swept the competition in singles action. In the No. 1 matchup, freshman Vlad Rotnov cruised past Kroeze, 6-0, 6-1, and Thai was nearly as dominant in No. 2 singles, tallying a 6-0, 6-3 win over VanderStoep.

Earning their second victories of the day, McDonald and Brown totaled wins in No. 3 and No. 4 singles, while freshman Patrick McGuigan finished off Smiley, 6-0, 6-2, in No. 5 play. Jacob Dennen rounded out the team win with a 6-1, 6-3 victory over Folkert on the No. 6 court.

With a record of 5-1, the Big Red are off to their best start of dual season play since 2012 when they went 7-0 to start the year.

Denison will return to Mitchell Fieldhouse next Wednesday, March 28 when they host the College of Wooster at 4:30 p.m. in Granville.
